    but it is usually me walking out of the room, for a couple of minutes, when something goes horribly wrong or the opposition get on a run.

    AFL Insider said the Saints are favoured on Saturday night because it is at Etihad and their winning stats are with them. Lynchy did say that it will depend on Goodes.

    I'm hoping that last Saturday's night win against carlton gives them a false impression. Kreuzer went out early, the Saints played the two ruckman who should be more competitive this time against Mummy.

    Reiwoldt was ineffective with his knee injury and how he plays next week is anyone's guess. So I'm hoping we can kick straight and repeat the ANZ result. They didn't have Kosi but we didn't have Rohan.

    I was away for a while and only saw the Gold Coast game tonight. I had to stop watching as we were butchering the ball - kicks over team mates' heads, sloppy possessions and not fussed if we kicked behinds instead of goals. It's hard to see the same team there as the one that took on the Cats and the Lions. If you are looking for the form team in the comp, it's the Swans. In our favour - we'll be playing in dry conditions. Against? There may be an emotional letdown after the last few hard weeks. I've tipped us to win by two goals or so.

    I've been wrong too many times this year so in that vein. Saints by 50

    We don't seem to be regarded as a serious chance by the Melbourne media.

    I'm having a look at Inside Football, and everyone (except Jim Main) reckons the Saints will do us over by 8-22 points. Even Jim thinks we'll only scrape across the line by 2 points. They're playing up the fact that apparently St. Kilda has won its last 26 Saturday night games at Etihad.

    Didn't we get written off the same way in the preliminary final of 2005? I think we can prove them wrong once again.

    Saints are a running sore in Melbourne. The club has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. No flag is just too much to bear. The pies came along and closed the saints window of opportunity.

    We have to kick straight and true and we beat them. If we rest on the laurels of the last few weeks then we are in trouble. The old blood underdog spirit is needed.

    Love it, that's when we play our best!

    A lot of their wins there have been against low sides. The games against Top 8 teams shows they get beaten often enough there including a pumping by Essendon this year, a loss to the Pies and to Carlton. Granted they beat the Eagles this year there but we beat them in WA! That stat doesn't say much really so I hope they talk it up because it will mean absolutely nothing to our boys
